Hospitality Management offers specialized and practical course experience with options in restaurant management, hotel and lodging operations, and culinary arts.
Training is focused on helping students to develop their own operational systems and management structure to broaden their career base in the highly interrelated fields within the hospitality industry.
Hospitality Management students also manage their own full service restaurant, The Crystal Room Restaurant, located in Gallucci Hall. [Though Gallucci Hall will be offline for student housing for the 2013-14 academic year, the Crystal Room and the Hospitality Management Program will continue to thrive in Gallucci. Visit us!]
